Take a day out to beautiful Wimborne

Experience the historic and interesting town of Wimborne Minster just a short drive from South Lytchett Manor

We are a family-run Dorset campsite in Lytchett Minster catering for campers, caravanners and motorhomes of all kinds.

A short journey time from our park is the quaint market town of Wimborne Minster. The beautiful and historic town has numerous attractions and first rate restaurants, cafes and pubs to enjoy. It’s a great place to wander around especial on one of the three weekly market days.

Wimborne attractions include:

Town Market

Held every Friday, Saturday and Sunday Wimborne Market has established itself as a firm fixture of the town. Fridays have plenty of farmer’s market stalls where you can find plenty of fresh local produce including a regular quality butchers, bakers, fruiters, fishmonger and cheese stands. There is also an antiques centre along side the market which has an array of collectables and furniture for sale.

Wimborne Minster Church

Making a striking appearance on the edge of the town is the main Wimborne Minster Church. This is a Saxon church, with Norman and Gothic architecture. It is famed for its chained library and the tomb of King Ethelred, the brother of Alfred the Great, as well as the tombs of John Beaufort, Duke of Somerset, and his duchess, the maternal grandparents of King Henry VII of England. The tombs are made of Dorset Limestone and New Forest Stone.
